Hello, my name is Ryan.
I'm a husband, father and commercial Director and Producer, living in Michigan. My personal and professional ambition is to bring people joy and to produce compelling stories that are meaningful and beautifully crafted.
My approach to content production is rooted in years of creative producing and production experience ranging from documentary journalism to commercial advertising. Drawing on key-learnings and understandings from my practice as both a freelancer and creative agency staffer, I bring a combination of imagination, clarity and joy to every project I work on.
On any given day you can find my family & I exploring West Michigan parks and Grand Rapids libraries. My Saturday mornings are spent rooting for Liverpool Football Club with my daughter and little man, while my Friday nights are spent watching films with my wife while enjoying buttered popcorn mixed with Sour Patch Kids.
I have a BA in Cinema and Broadcast Arts from Azusa Pacific University and live in Western Michigan with my wife Kristine, daughter Ridley, son Forest & dog Stella. I am currently a Visualization Producer at Steelcase, in Grand Rapids, MI. The Princess Bride (film) was released the year I was born.
